    Abstract

    The Indonesian Ministry of Agriculture has the ambition to boast the sustainable production of rice in order to meet the increasing demand. Resource use efficiency can be improved if production loss owing to plant
    pathogens is resolved. Knowledge on the role of biodiversity on system stability must be translated Agricultural practices. Species with overlap in function may constitute biological control measures to create a resilient system against pathogens. As species may counteract, the approach needs to take into account the diverse effects caused by different pathogens, both above-ground and below-ground. Above-ground as well as belowground biological control may benefit from a multiple species approach. Pest-enemy interactions are often embedded in rich communities of multiple interacting pathogens and natural enemies. Designing IPM for multiple pests requires understanding of all interactions among species, both pests and natural enemies. The goal of the research is to investigate which currently available biological control agents are compatible or even act synergistically in order to build a resilient and sustainable crop protection system against Xanthomonas and Rhizoctonia in rice in Indonesia.
